31 Jan Unboxing the RoboCon robot kit…
A team from CIS have entered RoboCon 2020!
Students in the Year 10 Computer Science class have begun to prepare for Robocon 2020, the robotics competition organised by Hills Road Sixth Form College.
Today, we unboxed the kit and began to plan our build and strategy. We also learned how to connect to the robot control box wirelessly. We will build a robot using parts from the kit to deliver ping pong balls to a number of different places within a time limit. We will do this in competition with other schools.
The students will have to design and build a robot and program it to perform the competition tasks autonomously. This will help to develop a wide variety of programming skills as well as teamwork and organisational skills.
The final will take place at Hills Road later in the year,
